Cedar / Cedro / Spanish Cedar

Scientific name: Cedrela odorata L.

Common Name(s): Spanish Cedar, Cedro
Distribution: Native to Central and South America and the Caribbean;
also grown on plantations
Workability: Spanish Cedar is easy to work with both hand and machine tools. However, due to its low density and softness, Spanish Cedar tends to leave fuzzy surfaces if not machined with sharp cutters; extra sanding up to finer grits may be required to obtain a smooth wood surface. Also, natural gum pockets can remain wet and may ooze out onto the surrounding surface, which can clog and gum up saw blades, and make finishing the wood a challenge.
Odor: Has a distinct, lingering, cedar-like scent; this characteristic of the wood makes it a favorite for cigar boxes.


General Characteristics:

Light wood, heartwood ranging from beige-pink or dark pink, light brown, more or less intense, until reddish brown.

Trade Names:
